COLUMBIA — Four people were robbed at gunpoint Thursday night at their home in the 500 block of North Fifth Street.

Two men knocked on the door and forced their way inside when a resident opened it, according to a release from the Columbia Police Department.

The robbers then pointed a gun at the residents, threatening to harm them if they weren't given what they wanted, the release stated. The two men fled when they realized police had been called, taking some items with them.

Police arrived at 9:56 p.m. and attempted a K-9 search for the robbers, which was unsuccessful. 

No one was injured during the robbery, and no one has been arrested. 

Anyone with information can contact the Columbia Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 875-TIPS.
